"CKN" 2006 Obituary


CKNW 

CKNW o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-01 published
FOX, John Hamilton
Born January 8th 1925 in Toronto, and died there March 30th 2006 peacefully at Saint_Joseph's Hospital, predeceased by his parents John Hamilton FOX and Alice Arnott FOX (née WHITE/WHYTE) and his sister Margaret DAVIDSON; and survived by his wife, Ella, sons Michael and his wife Susan, Rick and his fiancee Michele IRION, Kevin and his wife Sarah, Steven and his wife Jan and his daughter Lisa; as well as his grandchildren Rebecca, Ben, Ella, Piers, Jack, Edward, and Joe; his step-grandchildren Jennifer, Julian and Chera FRANCOEUR; and his siblings William and Joseph FOX and Lucinda KRETCHMAN. When the war broke out young 'Jack' lied about his age to join the Canadian Navy at age 17, served on the H.M.C.S. Ontario and H.M.C.S. Matane, earning a Mentioned In Dispatches citation. His career in radio took him from CFJB in Brampton to the Radio Sales Bureau of Canada in Toronto and finally to CKNW in New Westminster British Columbia, thereby inspiring a love affair with the natural beauty of a place where 'you only get snow where you want it, on Christmas Cards and mountain tops.' John was a committed member of Lions Club International, serving as President of clubs in Brampton and New Westminster, where he established many close Friendships which, along with those forged during the war with his comrades-in-arms, flourished through the exchange of letters and emails until the last days of his life. But John's greatest passion, as anyone who knew him can attest, was always his family. He will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all the wonderful professionals who attended to John in the Intensive Care Unit of Saint_Joe's. He could not have been better cared for. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the charity of one's choice. For infor mation regarding a memorial ser vice to be held at a future date as yet to be determined, please contact the Ridley Funeral Home 416-259-3705 www.ridleyfuneralhome.com
